THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE

1 Minute Read

The Purpose of our lives is to be happy” – Dalai Lama

In the park nearby, I met my neighborhood uncle and had a small chit-chat with him. When I asked, Which was the best time of your life uncle?

The elder said to me – Of course, its when I was young and energetic, but I am also loving the time that I spend with my grand children.( I can see him smiling with his eyes twinkling, remembering his memories). Drenched in his cherishing memories he started sharing some important stories of his life(some good and some bad).

After an hour I came back home, with a cup of ginger tea in my hand I started to think about our chat and this question popped up in my mind.

So, What does this time of life teaches us?

  • Not to waste the precious time – Time just runs off within a blink of eye. Every second and every minute something happens and we learn & grow from it. Always be productive, positive and learn from it.
  • Time teaches us to grow – From little to big fights, heart breaks, betrayals, happiness, & love you must have faced all those roller coaster emotions. Only time teaches us to accept it, forget it, let it go & grow from it.
  • Time teaches us to appreciate – Time teaches us the value of life and motivates us to appreciate all the little things around us. Even if we hold grudge or hatred towards someone for a long time, we tend to forgive and wish good for that person, right. This is the magic of time.
  • Time teaches us to be grateful – After losing a loved one, we often imagine the time spent with them and feel its importance. As time passes on we feel grateful for all those times and cherish them (either good or bad).

I too admit that, “Time has made me strong and speak up my views compared to my old self”, yes I had & having the best time of my life(still many to come) and I will always cherish it.

My dear readers I want to conclude by saying that,

Life & time is always unpredictable

We need to go with the flow

But in the end it is right…

I wish you all to have the best time of your life.

Patience is the ability to wait, but not passively (that is laziness). Patience is a skill, the skill to maintain good attitude while waiting despite the difficulties. Patience gifts you with strong positive thoughts, confidence and good health.

Is The Gut Feeling True?

1 min read

Yes! It is, Only when you have healthy gut microbiota.

The feeling that keeps coming in our mind when something is not right or something is going to happen. Like being Nervous, feeling queasy or that butterflies in your stomach, feeling attached with someone whom we met first time and the difficult times where we make decisions based on our inner feeling.

That intuition is called as GUT FEELING.

Have you ever believed in this gut feeling and found things to be correct? One such very small gut feeling incident for me is,

Many times when I have waited for the city bus in a bus stop to reach my home from college, I have had a feeling that the next bus that comes is for me and many times it came to be right (This is one of the incident).If you also have any such gut feeling incidents happened for you then let me know in the comment box, would love to hear it.

These feelings are the proof that our gut and brain are connected with each other.

Gut feeling arises when we are anxious or stressed .

I am always surprised by the way how the gut knows and reacts to what we are thinking and feeling. Yes, the microbiota in the gut not only impacts on the physical health but also impacts on the emotional well-being.

” The gut and The brain are in constant communication”. – Dr. Lisa Ganjhu

This prime connection between the brain and the gut plays a vital role both in the gastrointestinal function and in gut feelings. So, with positivity inside you and maintaining a good health will mostly give you a positive and correct gut feeling.

Your gut microbes will definitely influence your perception and behavior. These gut microbes also produces a neurotransmitter named GABA (Gamma aminobutyric acid), which in turn helps to control the feelings of fear and anxiety. So, its good to keep your gut healthy with healthy microbes.

So, next time when your gut feeling is right, don’t forget to thank your healthy gut and its microbes. See you all in the next post dear readers. Stay positive, healthy and happy.

Gut Feeling Might Help You Make Better Decisions
